IIT-Bombay on Sunday held its 58th annual convocation ceremony in a virtual reality mode in view of the corona virus pandemic. The Institute thought it best to arrange such a VR-convocation for the graduating students, so as not to put their health at risk, but at the same time, not deprive them of the sense of achievement, and pride of passing out of India’s premier engineering Institute, IIT-Bombay said.
The personalized avatar of each graduate received the degree certificate from the personalized avatar of the Director Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri.
Speaking on the occasion, the director said, Providing a virtual reality experience to all our graduates needed not only highly innovative steps, but also a tremendous effort by our professors and staff. They did it for the students. Hopefully this will enthuse our graduates as well as other engineers in the country to think big and think innovative.
